With that wide penetration comes greater scrutiny when it comes to any security exploits that could affect Snapdragon chips. To that end, the researchers at Check Point have discovered over 400 vulnerable pieces of code within the Digital Signal Processor (DSP) chips found within Snapdragon SoCs used in hundreds of millions of Android devices. The 400 pieces of flawed code have been broken down into six separate security flaws, which are represented... Read more...
